About the Author

Laurie Keller is the acclaimed author-illustrator of Do Unto Otters, The Scrambled States of America, and Open Wide: Tooth School Inside, among numerous others. She grew up in Muskegon, Michigan, and always loved to draw, paint and write stories. She earned a B.F.A. at Kendall College of Art and Design, then worked at Hallmark as a greeting card illustrator for seven-and-a-half years, until one night she got an idea for a children's book. She quit her job, moved to New York City, and soon had published her first book. She loved living in New York, but she has now returned to her home state, where she lives in a little cottage in the woods on the shore of Lake Michigan.

Reviews

"Arnie takes destiny into his own hands with vastly entertaining results." --Publishers Weekly, starred

"Laurie Keller is a goofball. She's a genius. She's a goofball and a genius." --New York Times Book Review

"Keller gives 'pet food' a new meaning in this savory outing. . . . so deliciously silly is this confection, that few readers will pass up second helpings." --Kirkus Reviews

"[G]ood for a belly laugh." --Newsday

"Arnie is one of the cleverest and funniest books I've seen in a long time." --BookPage

"[P]acked with fun and sprinkled with so many illustrative and humorous asides." --Star Tribune, Minneapolis, MN

"In picture books, usually only dogs are as funny as this. Keller doesn't miss a trick." --San Diego Union Tribune

"Keller's riotous collages. . . .which are filled with gleeful puns, winning characters, and over-the-top silliness, are as manic and fun as a sugar high." --Booklist

"Off-the-wall humor and zany artwork" --Seattle Post Intelligencer
